The Saskatoon Health Region is recommending that everyone get their influenza vaccination.
The health region will set up their main vaccination headquarters at Prairieland Park but will be offering it in many other locations in the city as well as in other towns.
Deputy medical health officer, Doctor Ross Findlater, is suggesting that everyone get the vaccine, but especially the people most at risk.
He says that includes young children, seniors, pregnant women, and people with chronic medical conditions.
Findlater says the vaccine has been around for awhile and has proven to be effective but there are some minor side affects that include a sore arm or a little bit of dizziness.
The first vaccinations will be offered at Prairieland Park next Tuesday but clinics will be held throughout the health region until November 2nd.
A list of all locations and times is available at http://www.saskatoonhealthregion.ca/your_health/ps_public_health_ip07_clinic_locations.htm
